Previous Name: DK-START-GW2AR18 V1.1


GOWIN Semiconductor DK_START_GW2AR-LV18EQ144PC8I7_V1.1 Development Kit is a platform for evaluating the performance of the GW2AR-18 FPGAs. The Arora® GW2AR FPGAs offer an embedded 64Mbit PSRAM and a streamlined FPGA architecture with a 55nm process. These features make the GW2AR suitable for high-speed and low-cost applications.

The DK_START_GW2AR-LV18EQ144PC8I7_V1.1 Development Kit offers rich external interfaces, including LVDS, GPIO, slide switches, key switches, LEDs, reset, and clock resources. The DK_START_GW2AR-LV18EQ144PC8I7_V1.1 Board provides a USB download interface. The data stream file can be downloaded to the internal SRAM or the external flash as needed.
